Ingrid Aarvik Berge
In my work, I explore strategies to reconnect with nature. Observing is at the core. My experience of living on a small farm has given me a deeper understanding of ecology and how nature works
I am interested in the complex social and ecological dilemmas of our time, such as human intervention in nature, species at risk of extinction, loss of biodiversity, and how all of this is connected.
